Just had a random craving to be in the rurals, listening to my late granny speaking in Sotho & helping my cousins roast some fresh meat over an open fire under the star studded night sky.
I just want to be far far far away with my family. #diasporaBlues
@PeterSweden7 Yemeni by ancestry,Kenyan by birth;spent half lives in each, ended up living in Yemen..used to think I belong in both, but in reality I never fully belong in either, somehow, in that diversity&in falling between the gaps, I find myself standing tall in a unique place I call home.
Indeed! Came across #IjeomaUmebinyuo’s #DiasporaBlues when I moved to the US from the UK, not knowing I’d move to #hongkong a few yrs later, take part in Hong Kong International Poetry Nights @IPNHK, and get to invite her here this yr! Everyone, come to HK this Nov for @IPNHK!

One day I'll tell you about the time I got stranded in Amsterdam and one of my 'best' friends told me politely to fuck off. Slept on an airport bench for six hours and took the next plane back to Geneva. #diasporaBlues
Alta distopía, qué nivel... Imaginaba de niño un futuro chicloso y rosáceo. Nada, nos embobaron, nos embobamos. Y ahora: migrar, producir, comer, dormir, cagar, tener esperanzas, no caer en huecos, tener confianza en sí mismo, y jamas olvidar: no explotar (bis). #diásporablues
